Praise From a Homeowner

Dear Friends,

Ken Wheeland and Foster Sherwood came to my house on 11/24/2014 for a "Home Ignition Zone Evaluation".  They found numerous danger spots including a dog house adjacent to the wall, wood too near the wall, flammable door mats next to the house, a gap in roof-wall joints, dead vines on the carport, bamboo near the front door. It was suggested that I separate the wood fence from the house, lift the olive trees, etc.

Many things I had only thought about fleetingly.  However, their professional assessment really woke me up.  I have been implementing their suggestions since their visit. I am very grateful for the time and effort that they volunteer for the benefit of our community.  Actually, I am in awe of their largesse.
